Although we took the NL East by four games, the oddsmakers and sports pundits were calling a Braves appearance in the World Series a long shot. Then the Braves began sweeping through the 2020 Playoffs: 2-0 over the Reds (NL Wild Card) and 3-0 vs the Marlins (NLDS) with stellar, shutdown pitching performances.
Next came the talent-loaded Dodgers, who shockingly found themselves down to the Braves 2-0, then 3-1 in the NLCS. With a trip to the World Series well within our reach, we came up short in Game 7 of the NLCS losing to the Dodgers by one run, 4-3. Congratulations guys, you played your hearts out in this strange season like no other. We’re proud of all you accomplished in 2020.
